I thought so too, but actually, I think it is Yahoo that’s dropping all groups.  Google is revising their groups in some way that should be seamless………I hope.

So if we want to keep our merry band together why not set up a Facebook or WhatsApp page/group? Wouldnt have to wait 24 hours to get a reply as it will be almost instant? Set it as a private group leave the contact options on here so anyone who wants to stay in touch can pop over to the new location. And that way we would not have a “me too” email that is forty foot long cos no one removed the original emails from the reply. If you choose whatsapp you can video message at no cost etc.


Happy New Year all

Great idea, Keith.  Why don’t you set it up?  Need someone much younger than me to be the ‘guardian’.

Gang,

is anybody interested in setting up such a facebook group? I do not have a facebook account yet, but that would be a good reason to get  an account there.

What do y'all think?

Henrietta Lange: The true test of a commander is when he is as frightened and confused as those who look up to him. In that moment, when you can't find it in yourself, you will find it in them. That's leadership.

Did I miss something? Is this group going away?

If it is I would be interested in a Groups.io mailing list, basically the same as the the current group.

I am thinking of getting off of Facebook, to much controlling politics by Facebook

I will not be joining the Facebook web site. I am going to delete my Facebook account. WAY TOO MUCH ADVERTISING stuff that I don’t want to be SPAMMED with. 
I also don’t have any use for Zuccerberg and his biased view on politics. I have always been an independent thinker and don’t appreciate any one suggesting how I should or should not think.

If everyone agrees I'll volunteer to set up the facebook page and invite a group of our members to get it started. We should be open until members find us and then go private. Also, include a couple of easy questions for membership.

It seems that Ed Roden beat you to it by about 12 years. Why he kept it such a secret I don't know and although I don’t like Zuckerberg or Facebook, there are a lot of VFB members there already and I have requested to join.


I don’t like the landing page as it is not connected with fly fishing, but I don’t know if it can be changed

Just be careful about posting any fly recipes or you may be censored or banned. I bailed on FB and twitter ages ago. Your information then belongs to them and not to you!

I don't remember creating it, but will look to create some other admins and moderators, then we can modify the group header and description and all that good stuff.

Hi Ed,

thanks for bringing this to life (hope this translates well...). I would not abandon the mailing list, use FB just as an add-on.
